Blossom by blossom …

A layout, with a photo I took, using the Tres Jolie February scrapbooking kit.

I grabbed my Ranger GoldContinue reading “Blossom by blossom …”

the morning after

the morning after – 1953 Recently, while combing through old photos my grandma had kept over the years, I came across this photo, and I fell in love with it! I find it to be hauntingly beautiful. The remnants of packaging are scattered among the new toys that had arrived the day before. Even theContinue reading “the morning after”

colder weather

colder weather layout! (the shards along the edges of the torn paper behind the photo are Silver Glitter Shard Glass by ReneaBouquets, but I took the photo with no flash so there wouldn’t be glare off the shards or the metallic words at the top!) Over at scrapbook.com, Amanda (scrapanda) hosts the Music Inspiration Challenge!Continue reading “colder weather”
